Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 28.882 billion Anti-Goatsackians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,926 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,961 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

A historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime is relatively low. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 18,927th in the world and 311th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
